The FA have upheld Guiseley AFC’s claim that midfielder John Rooney was wrongfully dismissed by the referee in Saturday’s National League derby clash with FC Halifax Town.

At a meeting of an FA Regulatory Commission held Tuesday, the Members considered Guiseley’s claim of wrongful dismissal and from the evidence, ruled that it was a case of wrongful dismissal.

Thus Guiseley AFC’s claim has been successful and Rooney’s automatic suspension is withdrawn with Rooney immediately eligible to play.
